House Passes Black’s Resolution Protecting States’ Right To Withhold Funding From Abortion ProvidersFeb 17th, 2017 | By fyork
Congressman Diane Black (R-TN-06), a registered nurse and member of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, praised the bipartisan House passage of her resolution, H.J. Res. 43, which uses the authority of the Congressional Review Act to overturn a December 2016 Obama Administration rule forcing states such as Tennessee to provide Title X family planning grants to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. The resolution passed by a vote of 230 to 188.
Donald Trump The firm that made the dubious conclusion that pro-life investigators had “manipulated” undercover videos that caught Planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of baby parts is the one that hired the former British spy who authored the debunked salacious dossier on Donald Trump published by BuzzFeed.

We should not be surprised that his administration would lash out with this eleventh hour power grab on the way out the door, but I am certain this rule will not stand for long.
The Obama administration’s actions to protect its political allies at Planned Parenthood are personally appalling, but they also point to the pro-life movement’s growing strength. The president used this backdoor maneuver because Congress and state legislatures across the country have held the line, voting to prioritize true women’s health over abortion and to provide funding to health care providers that will meet the needs of women and families while protecting the existence of our unborn.
